Youths on The Zone

Tomorrow, two new video interviews of the following youths will be uploaded on The Zone at

An interior designer by profession, Rupert Cefai trained in art under the tutelage of Harry Alden and Alfred Chircop.

Eight years ago he decided to shift from his profession to focus on painting. Today he is dedicating his time solely to producing art – mainly painting, with a mixture of various other media.

Being a professional painter in Malta is not common and one wonders how an artist can produce enough work to ensure he can feed a family and live off what comes out of his studio. Yet Cefai is proud of, and loves what he does, and can’t imagine himself doing anything else. He has already exhibited successfully abroad, promotes his work and is making a name for himself. The rest is hard work and very long hours in his studio in Naxxar.

Watch his video interview tomorrow on The Zone.

It is still not common for young Maltese people to study abroad, to experience life without family and friends in a foreign country with its peculiarities, cultural differences and unknowns.

Ryan Zammit contacted The Zone and offered to share his experience of living abroad while studying for his PhD in knowledge management – the ups and downs; the value of being independent and taking care of things on your own.

Get heard and share your own experiences with others. Tell them about your career choice, what it takes to get where you are, the ups and downs you experience, and offer advice to those who are still uncertain about what they want to do in the future.

To be interviewed for The Zone, send an e-mail with a brief description of your career, talent, or a social issue you would like to discuss.
